Ground Rules

  • No fictional people

  • They can be alive or dead
  • It’s people who the most part have never heard about
  • If they are sort of known it’s okay, they just have to be mostly unknown for the greater public
  • If a person nominated is known to the entire group, barring research for this podcast, then the table can reject the nomination and that person can nominate again
